3D flower Fun!!!

I am now entering into a time in my life where there are a lot of "ZERO" birthdays about....mainly 40!!! Some time back, I learned how to make a 3D flower card at Alice's. Here is the original one I made some years back.


I have played around with it over the years and mainly done it for those close to me with zero birthdays. A couple of weekends back, I made it again, this time for a Mum at my kid's school, who turned 40.....and I made it in (Andrea you should be seated....PINK!!!) Now given that there is a highly reflective surface on the card......a CD...it is hard to get a good picture, but here is the result.



The flowers are made with Carla Craft punches and put together with silicone glue, which gives them their 3D feel. I also got to bust out my new Martha Stewart "Double Loop" punch.


Here is a close up of the flowers.....



All the leaves and flowers are hand scored. It is time consuming, but the end result is definitely worth it. I hope you like this card. I have done it in pastel purple, blue and yellow also.

Catch you all next time.

Stuff Used:
CS: Pink Bazzil, Metallic Silver
Paper: Stardream Pearlescent White, Pink and Light Green
Punches: (All Carla Craft) CP-11G Sakura, CP2 Sakura, Leaf, CP1 Sun, CP21 Rectangle, Leonie-M Mini Sun, Martha Stweart "Around the Page" Double Loop Punch.
Extras: Old CD, 3D mounting foam, Silicone glue, Upkit Silver number, Cornices and Presents Stickers
